Started firing a 223 AR recently & discovered that these muffs were a nuisance/distraction while establishing cheek weld to the stock. Who knew? This sent me researching & trying out other ear protection devices, even though the sound protection was fine.
Tried the two-colored cones that screw into the ears as well as several kinds of sponge inserts. All were covered by my muffs within minutes of firing the AR. Forget the 45.
Then I took a chance on the Allen Ultra-Light Sound Sensor with the AR. Think I heard a low pop somewhere. Was that my AR? Why yes it was. Quiet compared the pricey muffs and they didn't interfere with cheek weld. Sweet, but how about that noisy 45?
Talk about a difference in sound. It was like firing a different firearm; just a muted pop. Way softer than with the muffs. Had no idea a 45 could be so quiet.
Six hours later, on wrap-up, searched my car and bag looking for where I stashed my headset. Had to have stashed it since it wasn't on my head, right? Wait, it was still on my head, still plugged into my ears, under my hat. Good thing my head is screwed on or I may never have found them.
So, they may be foam, not silicone, but they do filter out gunshot noise, they are comfortable (even for small ear canals) and they are not "cheap crap". Looks like Howard's Muffs are retired, even for the 45.
That sounds about as exciting as watching paint dry or weeds grow. Ten years after the Zwislocki patent SensGard was awarded an ornamental patent based on the same principles. The roots of this type of ear muffler go back to a device created in the 1850s by Hermann von Helmholtz, the "Helmholtz resonator." Today, Allen is marketing this "Sound Sensor" product, with other companies including 3M and SensGard having essentially the same type of units. To the hunting and shooting industry, it still seems largely unnoticed. I personally had no idea it existed until Don Anderson, VP of Ed's Public Safety, called my attention to it.
Don had seen it at the SHOT Show a few years back, and ignored it as it felt light and cheap so it seemed to him it wasn't worth trying. That is until a few months later when Don saw the Glock team using a SensGard 31 db model at one of his Law Enforcement demonstrations.Read more ›
years and I have to say that I was less than thrilled with these. My main and really only complaint with
these is the fact that the part you insert into your ears is fairly large and did not work for me at all.
I am not sure if I have unusually small ears or this is the way they are suppose to be, but for me they
were quite uncomfortable. I did go over the instructions a few times to make sure I was doing things right
but despite all my efforts they are just not a good fit for me. Hopefully a slightly smaller diameter version will
be available for these in the future as the concept is brilliant and does work.
In regards to the performance... so far it works fine. It is not bulky like other types of hearing protection, it is more convenient. You can fold it and put it in your backpack or even wear it around your neck when not in use.
It does lower sounds but it does not make them vanish.
It seems to mute clock ticking and humming sounds but other sounds are just lowered a little but are still audible. It at least seems to protect the ears if you were walking in the street and a fire truck decided to pass by. You still of course hear the sirens but it is at least a few points lower. You can hear conversation and it seems to distort some sounds like a wind tunnel at times...not sure if that is a good thing or not.
It is comfortable to wear and it works great for people who usually have trouble with the commonly known disposable ear protection. This thing is much easier and saves the hassle of having to deal with disposables, especially if you have small ear canals :)
Unfortunately it broke easily in the area where it connects to the top due to its thinner plastic in that area. So It is not as durable as hoped :( but it worked okay while it lasted.
